Helping incarcerated individuals build better lives by providing secure access to productive education and communication tools.

Edovo seeks to decrease recidivism by making education and communication possible during incarceration. Currently, many of the 2.2 million people behind bars don't have access to education and spend their time instead watching daytime television. Edovo is rethinking incarceration, transforming it into an opportunity for positive change. Through secure tablet technology, Edovo provides those in custody with free daily access to educational, vocational, and treatment programming. Edovo also ensures affordable access to frictionless communication, allowing incarcerated individuals to effectively stay in touch with family, employers, and other critical support networks. Currently, 95 percent of Edovo users are able to seamlessly navigate the platform within 2 weeks, and over 75 percent of the population in a major American jail housing unit are using Edovo on a weekly basis, with an average of two lessons completed per day.
